Coastal Carolina University hosted their 2nd Annual Spadoni College of Education’s “Trunk or Treat” event on Tuesday, Oct. 30. The event was sponsored by the College of Education and hosted by the Student South Carolina Education Association, Teaching Fellows Programs and the Call MeMISTERS.
The two-hour event was held for students, faculty, and children around the community in the YY parking lot off 544 and members of different clubs and organizations could be seen coming together to make it a special night to kids dressed up and expressing their excitement for the Halloween season.
Many different activities like arts and crafts, freeze dancing and coloring were offered to children that attended. Different student organizations entered the trunk competition by paying a $10 entrance fee or donating a bag of school supplies.
Additional donations that were collected at ‘Trunk or Treat’ will also be used to provide school supplies toward the schools in and around Horry County.
Many parents that attended Tuesday’s ‘Trunk or Treat’ were very pleased with how Coastal Carolina University put on the event and were impressed by the involvement of the many students that came to devote their time and energy to making local young kids smile.
Halloween is a day where childhood dreams soon became a reality with the exciting reunion of Woody and Buzz in Andy’s bedroom, taking an adventure through Crayola-land, or having a rap battle with the mummies. When the sun goes down, all the witches, ghosts, and scary characters come out to dance the night away at one of the most amazing events of the year. The ‘Trunk or Treat’ event on Tuesday night certainly personified that.
This event was a special way to bring the Coastal Carolina and the Horry County community together as one.
